Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Early AM run before the family woke. It was nice out. I do forget how much colder the humidity makes things feel. Even though it was in the mid-50s my hands got pretty cold by the end of the run. Saw a few people out. Not many animals but did hear a lot of birds.

Day off due to work. Ended up having a late night with a dinner. Those are more fun than work but being away from home for 14 hours does tend to drain me.

Well I thought yesterday was long. I knew most of today was going to be booked with meetins but I still had a lot to get done in lab so I was in lab by 4AM. I think that is a new record of crazy. In total I was up 20 hours today but only worked 15 of those hours. I squeezed in a treadmill run after dinner. Finally took advantage of the grade change and did random 3 while increasing the speed every quarter mile by 0.2 mph.

Got some sleep finally. I was not as tired as I expected from the tough first two days of the week. Even finally managed to get a little work on the manuscript done. Came home a little early to get a run in before dinner and actually see the sun. It was nice out. Started my run just as a neighbor was passing so I did the first two miles with him. He is building his way up to a 10K. Did the home loop. I think it was my first time this year if not three months.

AM family run. First pound loop all four of us then 11 loops with my wife. Nice that the loop is a 1/3 of a mile and can see the playground.
